We want to help create motivated and engaged young readers. This blog is about children's and YA literature (especially New Zealand), literacy research, and ways to get, and keep, kids reading.
Just 67 pages but what a story! I enjoyed this quick read for its plot and humorous writing. In fact, the author states he enjoys writing high interest books that appeal to junior secondary boys who are reluctant readers or need a dyslexic friendly text.
Ben, Alan and Mel are teenage friends who are the “The Stunt Dudes”; they love having fun and filming their school pranks then posting them on Youtube. But its The Cray-Zee Stunts web show that the Stunt Dudes most want to be involved with, but first they need a camera to film more stunts. Sister Fay comes to their aid -however there’s a catch. They have to create a movie and well,… mad stunts, love interests and toilet humour all add to the mix.
Let’s do it! Also includes a contents page showing the page numbers for chapter headings. This it would be handy for those reluctant readers who want to dip into the book.
